This is the best cake I have ever tasted and my favorite recipe. You can adapt it to fit many flavors of cake and use it for wedding cakes or stacked cakes. This is a recipe for a cake will get you more cake mix out of 1 box mix! Add chocolate chips to it, espresso powder to the water for a mocha cake or different flavorings in place of the vanilla...It is AMAZING!

Step 3

Add to dry ingredients and mix just until combined...DO NOT OVERMIX!

Step 4
